Prenatal Yoga & Postnatal Yoga Programs
w/ Leanne Matullo, E-RYT, RPYT
Saturdays in Spring 2018
Staring March 17, 2018! (note schedule)
10:15 - 11:30 a.m.
Prenatal Yoga weaves together yoga movement, breath, childbirth education & body awareness, along with a wonderful community of women. Here, you'll deepen the connection to your body, mind, and growing baby in classes especially crafted for your needs throughout all trimesters - and no prior yoga experience is necessary!
During a prenatal yoga session, we will:
- Address any aches, and apply therapeutic applications to support your changing body (i.e. alleviating nausea, backache, swelling, round ligament pain, and more)
- Move through poses and breathing techniques that prepare your body for labor, strengthen and lengthen muscles, optimize the pelvic floor, improve digestion and circulation, exercise the spine, and increase overall comfort
- Briefly explore themes for each class, including laboring positions, hormones involved in birth, building a team of support, and more
- Connect with other women in an atmosphere that's warm, safe, and fun!
Each session will include 15 minutes of conversation to start class, followed by a 50 minute yoga session and end with a deep relaxation. We'll move through a yoga flow together, practice breathing techniques to aid in labor, learning laboring positions, practice adjustments and light massage to support your pregnancy and birth experience.
